ARLB011 Vanity calls delayed

ARRL has learned that the FCC may delay until mid-1996 the
announcement of when it plans to open the first gate or gates of the
vanity call sign program. A Commission spokesman says the FCC first
wants to deal with remaining Petitions for Reconsideration it has
received. The FCC had been expected to announce opening dates early
this year.

FCC vanity call sign application Form 610V is now available, but the
FCC will not accept completed forms until it opens the appropriate
filing gates.

Prospective applicants can get the FCC Form 610V package by writing
ARRL, 225 Main Street, Newington, CT 06111. Please include an sase.
Form 610V also is available from the FCC via the Internet at
http://www.fcc.gov/Forms/Form610V or
ftp://ftp.fcc.gov/pub/Forms/Form610V/, or by fax at 202-418-0177.
Ask for Form 006108.

The FCC's Forms Distribution Center also accepts orders for Form
610V at 800-418-3676.
